Beyonce and Jay-Z perform in Paris as France win World Cup

Due to an unfortunate lack of foresight, Beyonce and Jay-Z put on a concert in Paris on Sunday that just so happened to clash with the biggest sporting event on the planet.

To make amends and placate the locals, the Carters did show the World Cup final on the big screens at the Parc des Princes, with the crowd inside the stadium treated to not one, but two spectacular performances.

Beyonce also took the stage wearing a France shirt at one stage, with the pop icon nailing her colours to the mast.

Interesting that Beyonce managed to get her hands on a Les Bleus jersey with two stars above the badge on the very same day Didier Deschamps' side secured their title as world champions with a 4-2 win over Croatia.

Her powers truly know no limit.
